Personally, I think the orange backlight on the LCD instument panel looks ordinary.
Is it possible to change the backlight colour and has anyone looked into it?

I think green would look much better.

A lot of people do it. It's quite a simple mod!

All you need is a low wattage soldering iron (Say about 15W?), anorexic fingers, patience and 12 3x2mm surface mount LED's. You can change out the shift light, neutral light, indicator lights etc. if it takes your fancy (That requires just the normal LED's). It's quite fiddly getting the cluster apart. The circuit board is quite delicate too so you have to be very careful when heating up the stock LED's to remove them. Then you just have to solder the new ones one making sure the resistance things are pointing in the right direction. The results are much brighter than stock and look great. Pictures just dont do it justice.
